Picture taken from my front porch near downtown Boulder, Colorado

Date/Time of photo:

December 6, 2020 at 9:50 pm MST


Camera: unmodded Canon EOS T3i; Lens: Rokinon 135 mm; Filter: Astromomik UHC-E; Tracker: Ioptron SkyTracker Pro


While trying to image the surrounding of IC 405 (the Flaming Star Nebula/Caldwell 31) from light-polluted Boulder I was surprised to see comet C/2020 M3 in my FOV. IC 401, M36 and M38 are also visible. The comet is the green blur at the middle right side of the picture. This image consists in a stack of 9 300s light taken at ISO 800 and f 1/2.8. Processing done using Nebulosity 4.
